Our school celebrates and encourages entire families to become involved in their children’s education. Exciting academic challenges inspire the whole school and every student to engage in learning. Our dedicated staff supports and encourages every student to achieve success. Cherokee is also proud of its partnership with local businesses, such as Travelers and Ecolab - providing art and theatre experiences including Taiko drumming, spoken word, and hip hop dancing.
Our new Montessori program serves all-day PreK-kindergarten and will add first grade in fall 2016. Call 651.293.8610 to arrange a tour of our beautiful new classroom or apply for enrollment here.
Students in Ms. Beese's 5th grade class are learning to navigate the foxtrot and other ballroom dancing styles, thanks to generous sponsorships from our community partners, Travelers and Ecolab. The class is taught twice a week by Bonnie Inveen from Heart of Dance and will run until spring break.
Big thanks to the many parents and family members who were able to join us for National African American Parent Involvement Day! From the pancake breakfast to parent visits to classrooms, our building was full of activity. Special thanks to our wonderful Parent Coordinator, Shirley Andino, for planning such a fun and engaging day.
Students in Mr. Blat's class recently completed a taiko drumming class through Mu Daiko Performing Arts, sponsored by Ecolab. Taeko is an ancient Japanese form of percussion that incorporates a dynamic playing style.
Communication and collaboration are key ingredients to the success of our students. Our teachers use a variety of formats, such as newsletters, notes, phone calls, email, and conferences, to keep you informed about your child’s progress and classroom happenings. Please check your child’s backpack often so that you do not miss out on important news. - Melisa Rivera
